Finally Sutter pointed out three excellent articles on the workings of the digital camera

After these introductory activities, members of the group offered images that fondly recalled pets, zoos and critters of all stripes.

We saw a menagerie of feathered and finned creatures, both in the wild and domesticated, interspersed with animal sculptures, wall hangings and paintings

The meeting ended with the distribution of photographic wisdom and oatmeal cookies.
